MR ANGRY’S PLAYING FIELD

‘Hot Day in Berck’ I’ve written a few protest songs before.  Generally mine are not angry songs. It’s not how I’m made. However, this one I’m playing around with is singing well enough, but singing angry. Maybe that’s the way it should be sometimes? ONE LESS INNOCENT Guns and souvenirs No wasted bullets, just wasted

SAYING ‘THANK YOU’ TO THE DEVIL

(Me caught on camera making a serious point when talking with The Devil) I got the notification that read, ‘Chart-Topping Artists – Discover this month’s chart-topping alternative artists now.’ It got better because one of them was me. I’m number 1 on ReverbNation’s UK Chart and have been for a week or so (19th on

‘Scotland Abroad’ ~ ‘The game is now over, I’m glad that we played A wounded heart full of sorrow, nothing betrayed Guilt is love’s shadow yet I’ll never forget From the corner of my eye your silhouette’ from my song ‘Pain’ aka ‘Love’s Shadow’ True story.

NEVER FORGOTTEN

‘Never Forgotten’ Mucking around with semi-protest song words on the guitar I suddenly realized I was playing to my ‘Rainbows End’ melody. Basically, I’d plagiarized myself. I’ve never done that before. Back to the drawing board. ENGLAND, OH ENGLAND At my door they try selling me their religion Online they want my money to sell me fame

SIT UP & SMILE

I was lucky to get hold of these two stone pieces the other day. The pic doesn’t do them justice. They’re much bigger than they look here and weigh a ton. The best part was that they cost me next to nothing. Happy days – I like them, I just don’t know exactly why although

MARMALADE CLICHÉ

‘Why?’  MARMALADE CLICHÉ Kicking the can Back to where it began Turning the clock back in time Photograph’s lies Memories surprise Words mostly choose not to rhyme   Harmony stays neutral Choruses truthful Verses are brutal or kind Sad chords lost in sea mist Melody dismissed Rhythm? Rhythm gets left behind   Pieces of beach

A BLUE, BLUE SKY

I got told there’s a sign in a Beijing hotel lobby that reads, ‘GOOD APPEARANCE PLEASE NO WATERMELON PLEASE’ What’s all that about? Brilliant. Somehow I’d like to see more random signs like this one. It’s like an untapped art genre. Anyway some music for a Sunday. An ambient instrumental I composed a while back

‘Hythe on a Friday in Feb’ BLUE ANGELS Instagram, your plucking at the feathers of blue angels They all claim a Photoshopped body beautiful She says, he says, “Look at me, see my great life, my ego flies It never ever, never ever, ever falls”   Deluded fantasy in a free gallery of wannabes And

MUSHROOMS ON MARS

‘Hot Chocolate Central’ – Café Culture, Nivelles, Belgium For reasons I can’t explain I was wondering if mushrooms would grow on Mars. I never did work it out. Probably they don’t, but thinking about Mars I remembered this song I wrote. It’s one of my earlier ones. I last put it on the blog when I
